Abstract

This chapter draws together data on the extent and type of fraud and forgery, both from police recorded crime and non-police sources. In doing so, it is apparent that the ‘shortfall’ between the level of fraud recorded by the police and that which can be found from other data providers is considerable (see Simmons, 2000; Levi and Handley, 1998).
